BBURAGO 1/18 NEW BEETLE
One of model is the Bburago, here in yellow. Bburago has produced a real winner with this model, complete with opening bonnet with detailed engine (yes,it's in the front), opening doors and hatchback (though it looks like the rear of the 'classic' Beetle, the curvy rear features a cleverly concealed hatch).
It's difficult to know where to start on the praise for this excellent model - one of Bburago's best. Interior details include the tiny moulded indicator stalks, 'glass' in the rear view mirror, grab handles. The distinctive and attractive hubs are very well captured, the wide tyres, all the lights are glazed (there's even orange glazing in the combined side lights and indicators) and the VW badge is as prominent as it on the new car.
